Our Student Reviews

“I was able to complete the full AAT qualification and achieve MAAT status within 21 months. Their lectures are clear and use a step-by-step approach. This gives you a great chance to pass the exams first time.”

Charlie Bennett

“Having no experience of working in accountancy I wanted a training provider who would be straightforward and knowledgeable. I found McArthur Online genuinely cared, and were flexible to my individual circumstances and needs. I found I was able to revise for my exams solely from the recordings, alongside practicing past papers. I achieved Level 3 working to a timetable, and then pushed on to Level 4 achieving an overall Distinction, even getting 100% in my MDCL module.”
